Description

Due to an overwhelming response to the Caminos that we organised / are organising this year, we are planning to hold an additional one from the 14th to 21st September 2024: The Camino Inglès from Ferrol in the Bay of Biscay to Santiago de Compostela.

 

The Camino Inglès is the route walked by Pilgrims from the British Isles, pre-Henry VIII, who landed mainly in Ferrol, in the Bay of Bischay, on their way to Santiago de Compostela. We will be covering approximately 135 km as follows. Today, this route is walked by approximately 4% of pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago.

  1. Ferrol to Pontedeume (route across the Nevantia Bridge approximately 25 km; 37 if one walks the traditional 1st day);
  2. Pontedeume to Betanzos: 27 km;
  3. Betanzos Hospital Bruma / Meson do Vento: 35km;
  4. Meson do Vento to Sigüeiro: 27 km
  5. Sigüeiro to Santiago de Compostela: 18 km

This event is open only to XirCammini Members. This camino is also characterised by a number of ascents and therefore, prior training is advised. It is also a very scenic camino, combining coastal areas and bays with rivers, hills, forests and historic urban areas.

 

The total contribution covering (a.) local transport from / to airport and first / final accommodation (b.) daily baggage transfers (c.) daily accommodation on twin sharing basis including breakfast (d.) local training (e.) credencial and concha (f.) assistance with obtaining the Compostela is €695. This is marginally higher than usual because we are incorporating the local cost of transport from Porto Airport to Ferrol and from Santiago back to Porto airport, eliminating the need, inconvenience, related risks (and cost) of a connecting flight.

The deposit on booking is €295.
